Roe & Co Blended Irish Whiskey Ireland
Vital Stats: 90 proof, 45% ABV. This whiskey is a blend of malt and grain whiskies that were further aged in second-fill Bourbon barrels.
Appearance: Light orange, though depending on the light there were yellow hues. A swirl in the glass revealed many quick-forming legs.
Nose: Definitely on the sweeter side for this one. Think honey and orange zest, but also floral elements somewhere between eucalyptus and honeydew.
Palate: The flavors for the Roe & Co were pretty straightforward and reminiscent of what you pick up in the nose. The whiskey itself is on the lighter side, so the finish doesn’t last that long. The primary elements were there, though with the addition of a touch of black pepper. Just enough spice to be a pleasant surprise.
